Health and the Roanoke Region’s Future

This is a bit of a shameless cross-post.  On my RIDE Solutions blog, I’ve got some info about today’s Partnership for a Livable Roanoke Valley stakeholder’s meeting during which we reviewed the results of a recent Virginia Tech survey and a series of public meetings that occurred over the last few weeks.  There, I exhorted folks to provide additional input to the Partnership through their ideas.livableroanoke.org website, and I would encourage you to do the same.

One slight difference, though:  Clean air and water ranked very high on questions asked during the valley-wide survey on a top priorities citizens had for the region, even to the point where people said they were willing to pay more to make sure air and water were clean.  This is good news for folks monitoring air quality and lung health in the region, as it suggests that it won’t take much convincing to keep this a priority.

Still, I would urge folks to head over to ideas.livableroanoke.org, create an account, and start posting, sharing, and commenting on the ideas and priorities suggested by others in the community.  It’s the best way to make sure that health concerns remain a priority in the vision for the Roanoke Valley.
